Title: Poetry Contest #71 -- no kidding
Post by: 510bhan on January 01, 2013, 03:38:40 PM
Your poem must contain the word ‘goat’. Might be goat curry, goatee beard, scapegoat, sacrificial goat, goatskin . . . whatever type of goat you can use. I will not accept go-at – that is interpreting the prompt far too loosely. :D

You have a week to write your poem – entries will close at midnight on Tuesday 8th January.

Please send your poems to me by PM.

Have fun.

A Spiritualist is giving a talk at a meeting hall in Bodmin, Cornwall.  He asks the audience if any of them have any experience with ghosts

"That I have!"  Janner jumps up and down waving his arms around in excitement.

"And what was the nature of this experience, Sir?"

"I often had sexual intercourse with 'em."

"You've had intercourse with ghosts?"

Janner folds back into his chair, looking miffed.  "I thought you said goats."

I well aware that some of you charitable souls may have already donated money to 'Send a goat to Africa'.  But could you, out of the kindness of your heart, dig keep into your pockets keyboard, and find another one to send to Sio.

Just picture this poor pale waif, stood on her Irish hilltop, skin glowing with the pale luminescence of the Irish 'Rain Tan', gazing forlornly over her small herd of goats.  

Just a few more, be they cheerful gambolling kids or ornery old buggers with the kind of eyes[1] which make a piss-head's look normal.

Dig deep my friends, free yourselves from the burden of unwanted goats haunting your psyche.  It's all in a good cause.

Gyppo

If you want top see those eyes stop the action at 1.25 on the video Heidi posted.

One of the many reasons I admire you, Gyppo, is your willingness to get involved and to kick the arses of those who hesitate.

Well spoken

Pale
